Morning Peeps, a new theme is starting today at Allsorts, it's 'Wings and Tails' as selected by Ellie along with the chance of winning two prizes, an AALL and Create stamp set or three image from Ruth Hamilton Design .
I have used AALL and Create Follow your Own Path stamp set which also happens to be the same set one winner will receive, well not literally, they will get a brand new set I assure you! The Woodpecker features on my card, but there's also a Toucan and lots of worker stamps and words.
The background stamp from Fully Fledged was inked with Oxides and spritzed water, the arrows stamped and coloured, same with the Woodpecker but I cut that out and placed over some 'straw', word and small birdie from the same set and washi tape to finish.
My second card is a simple Christmas card, no inkiness for a change other than the Gelli Plate panel onto which I stamped the large AALL and Create Pheasants and heat embossed with detail copper EP, the bottom border is a stamp from the same set and the sentiment a lovely old wood mounted Penny Black.
We hope you will join us this week and share your Wings and Tails.

Great color combination on that first card. Love the second card with the embossing and that image. Very elegant card.
Love your woodpecker card Brenda,it is the star of the card,the pheasant is a beauty too
Two great cards Brenda just love the woodpecker so he's my favbourit
Two fabulous card-love the second monochrome one but my favourite is the colourful woodpecker card
Beautiful stamping as always- both your bird-themed cards are gorgeous. xx
What a fabulous woodpecker. I do think A&C miss out not showing the images in colour because I would not have thought to use this set as you have done.
Your Christmas card is wonderful and has a real vintage feel to it.
Lovely wings and tails here Brenda. That pheasant is a magnificent fellow embossed in copper. We have a lot in the field at the moment. The neighbouring field is planted with a maize patch and kale and is the rearing ground for the poults. They had the first shoot of the season last week which is always fun. Bo and bumble are particularly enthusiastic about it all, Wills is very good with the guns but one of the paying guests, Symba (Arabian Endurance horse) is less keen and self exercises for the duration of the drive xx
Very different and both amazing, great techniques and inspirations!
Love BOTH of these cards B.
Great idea to use copper heat embossing on top of that pretty gelli print.
Happy Saturday xxx
(Still doing the happy dance here!)
They both are so beautiful, loving the color scheme on the first and great details! But also loving the monochromatic look on the second card, the gelli print background looks fantastic and beautiful pheasant image! Love the old fashioned sentiment font!
Two wonderful cards Brenda, fabulous designs and colours, Kate x
Two wonderful cards brenda. I really like the woodpecker and your colour scheme.x
Fabulous cards with gorgeous backgrounds too;-))m
Two awesome cards Brenda once again. Your stamping and stencilling is awesome. I am still trying to perfect the use of stencils.
Usi sempre così bene i "timbri di lavoro" (i worker stamps, non trovo una traduzione decente in italiano) e anche questo sfondo si fa notare! Molto divertenti i due picchi e che bella combinazione di colori!
Molto elegante la card con il fagiano nei toni neutri e il tuo background con il gelli plate mi piace moltissimo!!
Spero che la pioggia in UK si sia fermata un po'. Qui da me oggi c'era il sole, ma al sud molti terribili disastri...
Un abbraccio, buona Domenica!
Love the colours on your first card and the gorgeous copper on the second. Lovely gelli print too xx
Once again I must say how much I adore what you do with backgrounds! Just beautiful cards, Brenda.
Great ways to use the birdstamps! Gives a real different feel that 2nd one! Must say I didn't thought of using this kind of stamp in this way, but it is beautiful! Enjoy your weekend!
Great card, Brenda. I love the stamps. Hugs, my friend.
